(3Ders.org) A recent report by France’s Employment Policy Council (Conseil d’orientation pour l’emploi)estimates that less than 10% of jobs will actually be threatened by new automated technologies such as 3D printing.
Marie-Claire Carrère-Gée, president of the Council, commented on the findings, saying, “With regard to their impact on employment, robotics, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing warrant neither fear nor elation. The transformation that existing jobs will undergo, likely on a large scale, can open up many opportunities and can make many menial tasks less tedious and more efficient. The job losses, potentially significant, can be compensated for by new job creations in France. It’s up to us—economic players, citizens, and public authorities—to provide the means.”
